Solar Frontier Americas, the US subsidiary of one of the world’s largest CIS module manufacturers, is nearing completion of two solar plants totalling 106MW in Southern California.

Located in the Imperial Valley, the projects Midway I and II are situated in the great Mojave Desert and were both installed with NEXTracker single-axis trackers and Power Electronics rugged HEC PLUS inverters. Minnesota's Blattner Energy assumed EPC responsibilities for the projects. 

Solar Frontiers Americas inaugurated the two utility-scale plants on Monday in an official ribbon cutting ceremony led by Eduardo Garcia, a California State Assembly member, alongside representatives from the Imperial Irrigation District and Imperial County.

“We focus on first-class execution to construct high quality solar systems that will reliably deliver high system performance in the long term,” said Charles Pimentel, company CEO. “Solar Frontier Americas Development team encountered several project challenges and through collaboration with the Imperial Irrigation District, local authorities and land owners, were able to effectively navigate solutions maintaining our high standard of quality and completing the projects on schedule.”

The newest additions to Solar Frontier America’s project pipeline join almost 166MW of solar projects in operation or development. Overall, the company manages more than 400MW across the country in various stages of development.
